Adding and Subtracting One and Two
This maths board game is essentially a numberline but kids won't even know they are learning. The game introduces '+' and '-' signs and focuses on going backwards and forwards along the numberline in 1s and 2s.

A simple game like this can have so much potential for learning opportunities. Within our game, we also included some number bonds (by putting prize squares and asking what you need to roll to land on the prize) and had some danger squares where you could get stuck (squares 24-26). These squares create the opportunity to discuss the relationship between adding and subtracting and how taking away two "undoes" adding two.

You are welcome to download and print our version of the game, but we had great fun making it and even practised counting down from 30 in doing so. See us making the board game here:
